This was our 5th time staying on Bonaire for a month and our first time staying at the Blue Sky Bungalow in Belnem. We are scuba divers and nature lovers and we found the property to be a perfect fit for us. It is located in a quiet neighborhood populated with abundant, colorful local birds. The property is landscaped with plants chosen to attract and feed the birds and the front yard is a shady haven. The house is well appointed with an updated kitchen and new air conditioners in the bedrooms. We especially liked the jalousie windows that can be left open to catch the breeze while still keeping the house secure. The terrace above the garage was a great place to relax in the evenings after a day of diving. We enjoyed having the use of the charcoal grill; with the nearby, well-stocked grocery stores, we were able to relax and cook most of our meals at home. We come to Bonaire to dive, so having a good setup for gear washing and storage is important to us. The house has gear washing buckets and a hose, some drying racks and secure storage in the garage.
The rental listing and pictures were spot-on, everything was as described. The house was clean, well-maintained and secure. The WIFI worked great. The owner, Lynn, was very responsive and easy to deal with during the rental process, and payment through the VRBO site was seamless. The manager, Ellen, lives across the street, so she is very accessible if needed.
We had a great holiday staying at the Blue Sky Bungalow and we hope to stay here again!
